[IronPython] (ironclad) is it possible to get the current ScriptEngine?

At the moment, when a user types 'import ironclad', I create a new
ScriptEngine and set that up to allow .pyd imports; I then abuse
path_hooks to use the new engine to do the imports, and copy them into
the original engine's sys.modules. Clearly, this is evil and wrong on
any number of levels, but so far it's been (just barely) good enough.
However, if I can find out which ScriptEngine is executing the code (so
I can pass that into the Python25Mapper), I can greatly simplify
ironclad.py and, hopefully, solve another user's problem (which, I
believe, is related to sys.path not being shared between the two engines
(quite rightly so, ofc ;))).
So: is there any way I can get a reference to the executing engine from
within IronPython code? It feels as if it should be possible, but
whenever I look into it I end up chasing my tail...
